The Black Witch is a nautical horror novel that chronicles the fate of the crew of a ship with a dark presence dwelling on board. Set in the 1930s, Micheal Rivers incorporates interesting scenarios and well-researched seafaring info into this tale. I found the plot to be somewhat uneven, often shifting rather too quickly for my liking. At times it seemed at though the author was patching together a collection of different ideas into a single story. I would have enjoyed more character development. I can't really say I was emotionally invested very much in any of those in the story, and for me, the best horror involves characters for whom you want to root. Despite these criticisms, the book was enjoyable nonetheless, and kept me up late reading on more than one occasion. If you like horror, especially set at sea, then I'd recommend The Black Witch for you.
